Summary: Imagine a killer who can kill at will from a distance. No gun, no weapon. Nothing more than a thought.” Catherine Mans has the ability to see and hear what others can’t. With the help of Homicide Sergeant Cody Allen, she’s turned that talent into a successful profession as a psychic consultant. But Catherine’s past is coming back to haunt her. Someone is threatening the lives of everyone she loves. Nine bodies have been discovered, and Catherine is the FBI’s prime suspect. To prove her innocence, she must unravel the secrets of her past, and answer the challenge of a deranged psychic. Bet you can’t…FIND ME!
Review: To begin with, I wasn’t sure that this book was necessarily for me. I don’t tend to read books about psychics, but I quickly got drawn into the story and struggled to put it down. I was quite interested in a psychic helping the police, but what I really enjoyed was how creepy the story got! I loved reading about the Bayou and really enjoyed the different languages (with translations) that the author took the time to include.
On the whole, the characters were well-developed and interesting. Catherine was mysterious at the beginning of the book, which made it a little difficult to like her, but as the book progressed and I found out more about her past and the events that she had to go through, I started to really like her. I also really liked the character of Rosetta. She was fun, quirky and fearless. However, I didn’t like the character of Cody and thought that he needed to be developed more as his character felt a little flat at times.
This book was interesting with many twists and turns. Leading up to the end of the book, I found it impossible to put down. I had absolutely no idea who the killer was, and just when I thought I’d guessed, I found out I was wrong! The author concluded the story but still left me eager to read the next book in the series, which is an impressive skill. Definitely recommended!
★★★★ – An interesting book with many twists and turns. Enjoyed reading about the Bayou and everything associated with it! Definitely recommended!
